Gnome Again

Posted 06-13-2010 at 09:51 AM by brianL

Yes, I've decided to install Gnome SlackBuild again. This time, if I ever get rid of it, I shall follow the correct procedure. But I think I'll keep it. Having as many DE/WMs as possible adds to the attraction of Linux. Variety is the spice of life, and all that. I'm not an absolute fanboy of any particular DE, it's what is underneath that matters.

Trek 3900 disc 2009

Posted 06-12-2010 at 03:52 PM by Lexus45

As you may know, one of my greatest delights is riding a bike. And I'm happy to say that some days ago I extended my 'garage' - I bought the second one, it's Trek 3900 disc 2009. And this is how my bike looks.

Another bike is Norco 125, 2008 year model, for street/dirt riding. I'm learning the basic street tricks. It's hard. Don't think that *nix-sysadmins are fat sport-haters, who only sit in front of their PCs and drink beer.

A couple of surprising comments on Windows security!

Posted 06-12-2010 at 04:37 AM by rich_c

I've noticed a couple of articles of late from pretty authoratitive sources stating what a lot of us already knew. This being that Microsoft Windows is a security liability.

This first link is from Dell. It clearly states in point 6 of the page that Ubuntu offers more security than Windows. Also, further down the page, it lists Ubuntu's anti virus and anti spyware apps as unwarranted!* I hope this page stays up and doesn't mysteriously disappear within a few days...
